This video is about the speed skating women, during the first outdoor marathon race of 2016, in Haaksbergen in the Netherlands.
23-year old Irene Schouten, the Dutch champion on indoor ice, won the race, as it snowed.
Later, the men’s race started.
This year, the first Dutch speed skating marathon will again be on the Haaksbergen rink in Overijssel province. Tomorrow, 28 February 2018.
A few days ago, Ms Schouten won a bronze medal at the speed skating mass start in the Winter Olympics in Korea.
